mood: tiredtired

New Year's resolutions this year are to;
1. Do more self-directed work. One thing a month is certainly manageable.
2. Look at more Art, and culture in general. I still can't believe I missed gravity.
3 Tweet once a day.
4. More phyiscal exercise (more than none)
5. Cook a meal once a week. Eat less meat too.
6. Debauch less, while maintaining relationships. (this one will be tricky)
7. Meet more people.
8. Read more books. Even trashy books are better than bloody buzzfeed lists.
9. Listen to a new album once a month. Not necessarily new, but new to me.
10. Focus.


1. What did you do in 2012 that you'd never done before?
One night stand. It was alright.

2. Did you keep your New Year's resolutions, and will you make more for next year?
Sort of. I lost a stone through general under eating but it seems to be from everywhere but my belly. The doctor has told me I need to put it back on though, so I’ll need a better plan if I’m to shift this unsightly fat. I definitely got better at the CGI stuff by becoming a professional. That was pretty cool. *smugface*

3. Did anyone close to you give birth?
My friend Daniel had a son. He’s very cute.

4. What countries did you visit?
Spain.

5. What would you like to have in 2014 that you lacked in 2013?
More free time, some sort of relationship. I’m pretty unlucky when it comes to the ladies.

Starting at StartJG was pretty momentous. No weddings or owt like that though this year.

16. Compared to this time last year, are you:
i. happier or sadder?
Much happier, for certain.

Absent friends.

35. Who was the best new person you met?
Some of the new guys at work are pretty cool.

36. Tell us a valuable life lesson you learned in 2012.
The power of positive thinking. Also, taking chances can often pay dividends, I’ve found if you sort of choose where you’re willing to fail, then taking risks in other areas becomes much easier.

37. Quote a song lyric that sums up your year:
Ding dong the witch is dead.
